Reviewed on 19 January 2023Published on 22 June 2022

Advanced settings allow you to modify the default configuration of your Redis™ Database Instances.


Changing the advanced settings can have an impact on the performance of your Database Instance.

  1. Click Redis™ under Managed Databases on the side menu. A list of your Database Instances displays.
  2. Click the database name or «See more Icon» > More info to access the Database Instance information page.
  3. Click the Advanced Settings tab.

To add advanced settings follow these steps:

  • Click Add advanced settings.

  • Select a parameter from the drop-down list. For Redis™ Database Instances, you can configure:

    • tcp-keepalive - the period used to send Acknowledgment flags (ACKs), specified in seconds
    • maxclients - the maximum number of clients that can be connected at the same time
    • maxmemory-policy - parameter that defines how Redis™ selects what data to remove when maximum memory is reached.
  • Configure the value associated with your setting.

  • Click «Validate Icon» to validate.

You can click Add parameters to add and configure other parameters.

To delete advanced settings:

  • Click «Delete Icon» next to the setting you wish to delete.
